For a long time Sheriff Dan Barker
watched the shack in the hollow, looking
for o sign of life, then he tethered his horse
in the underbrush ond moved toward the
If he guessed right Burke and the Ban-
ner kid would be here soon with five thou-
sand dollars in loot from the bank in Long-
horn City. And Barker knew it was o good
gamble. This shack had been a hideout
for Burke years ago when the gunslinger
was in the brand-blotting business.
The sheriff kept thinking about the robr
bery. A bank hold-up with Barker eating
his lunch no more than fifty yards away
had been bad enough, but that the Ban-
ner kid had been teamed up with Burke —
that was a real insult to the sheriff. For
Dan Barker had raised the Banner kid ever
since he found him the sole survivor of an
ambushed train. For ten years he treated
Davy Banner like his own son, teaching
him the importance of honesty and clean
living, end now il was all over.
"How could Davy do that to me?" mut-
tered Dan bitterly as he came up to the
door of the shock. He'd know the answer
soon enough when Burke and the Bonner
kid would arrive with the bank loot and
walk into the trap that the sheriff was lay- '
ing for them.
But it was Dan Barker who was trapped.
He knew it the minute he opened the shack
door and saw Burke and his drown gun.
"Howdy, Sheriff. I figured you might re-
member this place. We've been waiting
Behind Burke stood Davy, a round-
eyed and scared fourteen-year-old.
"All right," said Burke, "tie him up in
that chair, kidl"
As the boy began to knot the rope Dan
Borker stared at him bleakly. "Davy,
how'd you get into this? Robbing a bank!"
"I didn't rob it, Dan," replied the boy,
resentfully. "I was only holding the horses.
Burke told me he was going to ride out
into the hills with me for target practice.
He's been teaching me al! about guns for
the past few weeks."
"So he tricked you into it? I warned you
about this weeks ago when you started
hanging around Burke. I tried to bring you
up right, Davy — "
"Well, the kid's through taking your
charity. Sheriff. He's on his own now."
said Burke. "I've taught him how to handle
o gun — for profit." He turned to Davy.
"All right, kid, take your gun and finish
off the lawman."
Davy turned white, but Burke regarded
him co\diy. "That's the ooly way you'll
prove to me that you're the right kind of
partner, tf you don't do the job you'll stov
here in the shack with Barker, both dead!"
"All right, Burke," said Davy, his eyes
cold and his lips grim. "Give me your
gun." Burke handed it over with on ap-
proving grin. And as death stored Dan
Barker in the face he closed his eyes.
The gun roared in the boy's hand. The
sheriff's startled eyes found the gun
pointed at Burke, who had a round hole
through the center of his hat. "That first
one was a warning," soid Davy, coldly.
"Kid, I'm your friend," protested Burke.
"You were my friend," said Davy as he
grinned at the sheriff. And Dan Barker
knew that the Banner kid was no longer o
kid — but a man who would never turn
from the straight and narrow.
